from – John Stagliano lawsuit? The actor known as Buttman is being sued by porn star Katie Summers. Summers reportedly is saying that Stagliano didn’t disclose that he was HIV positive before working on a porn film with the actress.

Stagliano, 61, came out as HIV positive in 1997. Summers (real name Katherine Howard) is suing over a 2009 porn film they acted in together. Summers is alleging that she was paid to appear in a porn film with Stagliano, where they had scenes that involved “sexual interaction.”

In 2009, Stagliano touched upon his HIV status in an interview. “I have been non-detectable since a few weeks after I found out that I was positive. That’s because I went right on the drugs and have stayed on the drugs. They have had no adverse affects on me.

“Non-detectable means that you can’t detect it with the best DNA tests available. There is a tiny bit in my bloodstream. I still have it technically, but I have never suffered any ill effects other than the nausea from the drugs. That has been minor,” Stagliano said.

Summers is claiming that she didn’t find out about John Stagliano’s condition until 2012, despite his obvious openness about being HIV positive. In her lawsuit, Summers does not say if she is in fact HIV positive.

XBiz reported that in the porn scene Summer is suing Stagliano over,

“Stagliano can be seen handing Summers sex toys and touching her ass, but he does not perform hardcore sex with her.”

Summers is also saying that if she knew Stagliano was HIV positive before shooting the film, she would not have agreed to it.

“Actors engaged in sexual contact during the productions of adult films in the state of California are as a matter of custom and practice, required to provide evidence of testing for HIV and are not allowed to engage in sexual contact if they have a test which indicates they are HIV positive,” Summers lawsuit against Stagliano says. “… As a result of Stagliano’s wrongful conduct, [Summers] has suffered damages.”

TMZ reports that Summers is suing Stagliano for negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and sexual battery. Summer is also suing Stagliano’s production company, Evil Angel Productions, which produced the porn film.

Stagliano’s wife Karen issued a statement denying all of Summer’s claims. “John and the company feel that he did not do anything with Katie Summers that would warrant having to inform her of his HIV status,” Karen said.

“He had no genital contact with her, no sexual touching of her genitals at all that would have put her at any sort of a medical risk whatsoever.”

“In addition, he’s been undetectable for HIV for over 15 years, despite doing repeated cultures even out of curiosity. Doctors and labs have not been able to find HIV in his blood for over 15 years, but he continues to take his medicine as a precaution.”

“As for the lawsuit, definitely John and the company feel that it simply doesn’t have merit,” Karen Stagliano told XBiz

“If she had any distress at finding out that she was touched on her non-genital skin by an HIV-positive person, that’s very, very unfortunate of course. But in this day and age, I think that a reasonable person understands that there are people out there that have diseases that are only communicated through bodily fluids.”

“So to be making statements that she was put at risk of death or contracting a disease like she has, that becomes a lawsuit that doesn’t have merit. I think there are some very irresponsible statements that are being made trying to imply that John performed as a sex performer in a scene with this girl, to leave it open to people believing that he actually had sex with her or did something along those lines. When in fact he handed the girl toys and it was a tease scene, and he touched her butt cheeks. But he absolutely never touched her genitals.”
